The Arve Tool does not do any actual calibrations; it only generates and uploads a "theoretical" curve which assumes
that the projector is calibrated. Thus, the overall performance of the projector after you've uploaded the curve will be affected by how well your projector matches a properly calibrated projector.
>>>According to this>>> "g. Before you move any further, now start the JVC Autocal software, go to ‘Settings’ and note down the IP address and port number of your projector shown within that page." ....it would seem I need to download JVC's autocal software, which I know is free via JVC. No biggie.
Yes, no biggie, but the IP address is set directly from the projector user interface, not in the JVC Autocal software. The default port number should work as nothing else would have changed it.
So I would actually being using JVC's autocal software to upload the BT1886 via the BT1886 curve in/from Arve/Python, correct?
No, the Arve Tool includes the upload function which works with high resolution gamma curves (256 points, if I remember correctly). The JVC autocal software works at a much lower resolution (12 points); besides, the V5 software does not even include any functionality to upload custom gamma curves.
I wouldn't actually need to do an autocal (I have no meter), just using the autocal software to upload....but I should of course be careful to install the BT1886 gamma into an empty slot so I don't overwrite a pre existing gamma curve. Correct?
Not really an issue as the custom gamma curves have their dedicated slots; you cannot load them into the standard slots.
